And what is so specific about this charger? A proprietary plug? Unique voltage amount? Insanely large Amper requirement?

1. Not propietary, I think, but the Recharge Port and the charger plug are geared to each other - especially in size. Finding a different charger with the right plug without knowing the model and size of the Port may become very difficult.

2. Voltage range is 100-240V, so nothing special here. It's established for many contemporary electronic and electric devices.

3. No, but its output is either 0.2 A (slow charger) or 1.2 A (fast charger). The slow charger can't charge a saber that is turned on - its output is lower than the amount the saber needs when turned on. Only the fast charger will charge a saber that is turned on.

4. The most important feature of both chargers is that they can "trickle-charge", hence the name "Smart Charger". That means once the batteries are full, the charger turns off. Once the voltage drops below a certain limit (due to normal battery draining in sabers without kill keys), the charger begins charging again. This is not implemented in many chargers, but quite important to maintain the functionality of the Li-Ion batteries.

I got lucky twice. My mystery box came with rechargeable, but no charger. Lucky for me I had a nice one for my flashlight batteries. Nitecore digicharger D2. Does Li Ion Ni MH and Ni Cad.

Does the LI charger come with the input and output cables? Mine came with just the docking station and no cables?

The Smart Chargers for the Recharge Ports come fully assembled. The cradle chargers for spare batteries only come with the power supply unit, obviously.

This is good info still. I didnt know at first that i had to use 3.7 v batteries specifically so i once replaced the batteries with basic  duracell batteries ..and when i did that...the sound was quieter and there was no light at all. U defnally can only use the 3.7v batteries.
